Young Living Essential Oils!

by Megan on December 18, 2015


If you’ve landed here you probably already know my passion for Young Living Essential Oils!  I was a bit skeptical at first, but knew that if anything, I would have a wonderful smelling house!  What ended up happening has been nothing short of magical!  I would love to talk to you more about the benefits my family and I have reaped from these seed to seal oils and awesome products.

Please feel free to browse the Young Living site and contact me if you are interested in learning more!

The Spice Melange

by Megan on February 20, 2011

I’ve recently been drinking Kombucha in my quest for living healthy and getting back in shape after baby.  What in the world is this stuff?!  It makes me feel awake and alive and I tend to laugh like a giddy school girl when I drink it.  I’m guessing it’s just a healthy balance of microbes and bacteria…but really, what is this?

So Long 2010!

by Megan on December 21, 2010

I actually had a great year due to the birth of my son, but 2010 was pretty depressing on the world stage.  I love these JibJab year in reviews, so here you go!  Pretty accurate!  :)

Ear Buds

by Megan on December 9, 2010

I seriously hate ear buds.  They hurt my ears and they make everything sound like the in-flight radio stations.  Not to mention, everyone around you can hear what you are listening to.  I bought a pair of Monster Beats by Dr. Dre last fall and they are still going strong.  Granted, they are pretty much falling apart at this point, but they still work.  I’ve had to get a replacement cord and the new one has duct tape all over it, but I’ll take the unsightlyness over the pain of ear buds anyday.

These headphones make everything sound so great — you don’t realize it until you have to wear ear buds because you forgot your headphones one day…:(

Do you have a favorite pair of headphones?

Science Podcasts

by Megan on May 15, 2010

I love love love love science!  In another lifetime (one in which I am very good at math), I imagine myself a biologist or physicist.  I’ve always loved science – the first thing I can remember actually wanting to be was a Marine Biologist.  Now that we are having a baby, I have high hopes for him so that I can live vicariously through him (ha!)  The next Carl Sagan, perhaps?  Who knows, but he already has more onesies and baby gear with stars, spaceships, and marine life on them than you can imagine.

Another thing that I love, which should go without saying, is constantly learning and exploring new things.  One way that I do this is through podcasts.  I have the luxury of being able to listen to podcasts at work so I fill the day with science news and history, lessons in virology and medicine, and tons of physics and astronomy.  Below are some of my favorite science podcasts that I highly recommend if you are interested in these subjects.  Are there any I am missing?

Veteran’s Day

by Megan on November 11, 2009

Thank you to all the veterans that have served and are serving our wonderful country.  Last year I posted the lyrics to Billy Joel’s Goodnight Saigon, and that song still reminds me of all that has been lost and gained through the sacrifices of service men and women of the USA.  Life as we know it would not be the same without you!

Happy B-Day Carl Sagan!

by Megan on November 9, 2009

The Symphony of Science has done it again with “We Are All Connected” – keep ’em coming, and of course, happy B-day Carl!


[deGrasse Tyson]
We are all connected;
To each other, biologically
To the earth, chemically
To the rest of the universe atomically

I think nature’s imagination
Is so much greater than man’s
She’s never going to let us relax

We live in an in-between universe
Where things change all right
But according to patterns, rules,
Or as we call them, laws of nature

I’m this guy standing on a planet
Really I’m just a speck
Compared with a star, the planet is just another speck
To think about all of this
To think about the vast emptiness of space
There’s billions and billions of stars
Billions and billions of specks

The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it
But the way those atoms are put together
The cosmos is also within us
We’re made of star stuff
We are a way for the cosmos to know itself

Across the sea of space
The stars are other suns
We have traveled this way before
And there is much to be learned

I find it elevating and exhilarating
To discover that we live in a universe
Which permits the evolution of molecular machines
As intricate and subtle as we

[deGrasse Tyson]
I know that the molecules in my body are traceable
To phenomena in the cosmos
That makes me want to grab people in the street
And say, have you heard this??

(Richard Feynman on hand drums and chanting)

There’s this tremendous mess
Of waves all over in space
Which is the light bouncing around the room
And going from one thing to the other

And it’s all really there
But you gotta stop and think about it
About the complexity to really get the pleasure
And it’s all really there
The inconceivable nature of nature
